Accreditation and system accreditation

The bachelor's degree programme in Information Systems was accredited in 2007 (and successfully re-accredited in 2013). This means that students now benefit from a programme whose structure and curriculum fulfill all of the accreditation council's quality criteria.

Currently, the University of Bamberg is in the process of system accreditation. While at the end of 2016 the procedure began formally with the confirmation of the admission requirements, the University is currently close to completion: At the end of February 2018, the University of Bamberg was commited the second time by a group of experts commissioned by the accreditation agency ACQUIN. As a result, the expert group honored the quality management system of the University of Bamberg with a recommendation to award the seal of the Accreditation Council. The official result and any conditions are expected during the summer months. Further information can be found in the QM ServiceNet
